Korri did better at ECFE this week. She cried when I left her at snack time, but managed to stay for all but the last 15 minutes or so. Progress! During parent-time, we watched a video about the Kazdin Method for Parenting the Defiant Child. We, thankfully, don't have defiant children (or at least not yet!), but it was really interesting and we tested some of the techniques over the next couple of days and they seem to really work. Now, it is just a matter of remembering to use them consistently!
Friday after work, we picked up the kids from daycare and headed over to NeNe's house for a visit. She is doing AMAZING with her new knee and continues to improve. I think she might secretly be Wonder Woman, but it trying to hide it! The kids had a blast AND Memere met us there, so that was even better. Memere came home with us for a sleepover, which Finn was super excited for. She brought Jim's mouse costume that Nana made when he was little. We tried it on Finn and it fits...and is beyond adorable. Can't wait for Halloween :)
We had a crazy, busy weekend, but I'll save that for another day (maybe I'll actually get pictures uploaded!).
And congratulations to auntie Becca, who officially, as of this morning, made it longer in her current pregnancy than she did with Austin! Yay. Now let's hope she doesn't go over due :) Those Ross babies like to be big!
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
